About the Jellyman & The Austin House

My grandmother started me cooking when I was 5 years old, so that gives me 57 years experience. When I married Mary Lynn we soon discovered that we both like do canning. Her grandmother had taught her how to do different types of canning than mine, she put up vegetables and such. In our business, Mary Lynn and I have tried to carry forward the true old fashion goodness with the things we made. Every jar or bottle was all natural with no artificial additives. We always said that if God didn’t make it, we didn’t put it in a jar. Our customers could count on taking home the best possible items we could make.

We started The Austin House Jams & Jellies in 1990 with a card table and 5 varieties. When we closed our business we making over 1200 varieties of just about anything you could imagine. We made traditional items, but we also made things no one had ever heard of. One of the items we made came from my visits to an ice cream store in a Mall. They always made just what I wanted, a scoop of Peach on the bottom and a scoop of Run Raisin on the top. When I tasted it was Peach Rum Raisin, so we had to make a Jam with the same combination. Many other things were made with the same thinking. If it tasted good one way, made it would make a good jam, or butter or some other item.

I hope this blog will be a way for some of you to start the same tradition in your home that was in mine. Teaching you family how to make good things to eat brings everyone closer together. Nothing like sitting down to eat and on the table are several things that you all had made. You ge a sense of self-pride when this happens.

Please ask for a recipe or an idea how to use something in ways other than toast. Ways to use things to cook delicious meats and other things.
